Air Conditioning for Heating

Everyone typically associates air conditioning for cooling you down during those summer months, whilst in the winter you’d look to radiators or electric heaters to keep you warm in the winter. But what if your air conditioner could keep you warm, as well as cool?

Combining air conditioning and heating into one unit

Air conditioning units can help you create the perfect climate for any situation, as they can don’t just cool you down – they can heat you up too! Through the use of a combined air conditioning and heating system’s reversing valve, the heat transfer process can be reversed, so that warm air is pumped into the room rather than being expelled.

Benefits of using air conditioning for your heating

There are many benefits of using air conditioning as the heating source for your property. These include:

One universal climate system

By investing in air conditioning for your property, you’ll benefit from universal heating and cooling from one unit, rather than having to purchase separate systems.

Also, if you choose to install split air conditioning units, you’ll be able to position an air conditioner/heater in each room whilst only requiring one external compressor, minimising noise.

Energy efficiency

From split air conditioning units to larger central systems, air conditioners are becoming ever more energy efficient. As they are able to efficiently heat and cool a property, air conditioning units can provide a constant and comfortable temperature, whilst also minimising energy use. This can lead to a reduction in your energy bill and your carbon footprint.

Reduction in humidity

That hot and sticky feeling caused by humidity is reduced, as air conditioning units diminish the moisture in the air.

Improvement in air quality

Air conditioning systems feature filters that purify the air, which reduce bacteria, dust particles and other potential allergens. This is great for those with allergies or respiratory issues as they will benefit from cleaner, filtered air.

Air conditioning and heat pumps

As well as air conditioning, we also specialise in heat pumps – another eco-friendly choice for your heating, cooling and hot water needs. Heat pumps work by absorbing heat energy from outside air and transferring it to indoor air. When in cooling mode, heat pumps and air conditioners are functionally identical, as they absorb heat from the indoor air and release it through the outdoor unit.

Heating FAQs

Do I need to install separate units for heating and cooling?

Not at all. Many modern air conditioning units (such as the models installed by Cool-Tec) come with heating capabilities, meaning they can provide both heating and cooling in a single system.

What is an air conditioner with a heater called?

An air conditioner with a heater is commonly called a heat pump. Heat pumps are a type of HVAC system that can both cool and heat a space, and they work by transferring heat between the indoor and outdoor units.

Can I install the AC unit myself, or do I need to hire a professional?

Although it’s possible to install an air con unit yourself, we don’t recommend it. Installation is a complex process that requires specialist tools and expertise, so your best bet is to hire a professional like Cool-Tec for installation. We’ll have the skill and experience to make sure your new unit is properly installed and functioning correctly.

How often should I have my air conditioning unit serviced?

To keep your unit functioning properly, we recommend you have your air conditioning unit serviced at least once a year. Talk to our expert team to arrange for scheduled maintenance – we’ll be able to catch any potential issues before they become major problems, saving you time and money down the line.

Can an air conditioning unit with heating features save me money on my energy bills?

Absolutely. Because it eliminates the need for a separate heating unit, a hot-and-cold air conditioner reduces your overall energy consumption and saves you money on your energy bills every year.

How do AC units heat as well as cool?

An air conditioning unit can both heat and cool by using a process called refrigeration. Refrigeration works by transferring heat from one place to another, and this process can be reversed to provide both cooling and heating.
